The health and safety of our patients and community members is our top priority. Beaver Medical Group has assembled resources to help you navigate issues arising from COVID-19.
If you are currently experiencing moderate to severe respiratory illness symptoms including fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care physician by phone to evaluate whether you need more immediate medical attention and to find out if testing for COVID-19 may be warranted.
Guides on Cloth Face Coverings
As of June 15, the CDC and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) have issued new guidance for the use of face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unvaccinated or partly vaccinated people are still asked to wear masks in almost all indoor settings and most outdoor venues.
Masks are still required in all healthcare settings, regardless of COVID vaccination status. Beaver Medical Group requires the use of face masks at all times at all Beaver locations.

When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated
COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. The CDC advises that people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:
If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all
precautions until you are fully vaccinated.
Please note: even if you are fully vaccinated, you are still required to wear a mask in certain locations, including healthcare settings. Unless you have an approved medical exemption, Beaver Medical Group’s mask requirement is still in place.

Caring for the Sick
According to the CDC, most people who get sick with COVID-19 will be able to recover at home. Care at home can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect people who are at risk for becoming seriously ill from the novel coronavirus.
